Basal Metabolic Rate (BMI) & Bioelectric Impedance Analysis (BIA) | El Paso, Tx (2020)

Dr. Alex Jimenez and Dr. Mario Ruja discuss basal metabolic rate, BMI, and BIA. Body mass and body fat can be measured in a variety of ways, however, several measurement tools may ultimately be inaccurate for many athletes.

Functional Endocrinology: The Endocrine System and CBD

Functional Endocrinology: The Endocrine System and CBD

Do you feel:

  • Unpredictable abdominal swelling?
  • Inflammation?
  • Acne and unhealthy skin?
  • Hormone imbalance?
  • Shaky, jittery, or have tremors?

If you are experiencing any of these situations, then you might be having problems with your endocrine system. How about trying some CBD oils to help calm down your system.

Making the headlines since 2018, the usage of cannabis or even CBD oil to treat ailments have been gaining popularity. Even though some states don’t legalize this plant yet, it has been sweeping through the U.S. with pop-up vendors, smoke shops, and even just selling the product on its own or with other products that contain it. When it comes to the body, however, the effects of cannabinoids, CBD oil, and cannabis itself can help dampen the chronic effects of inflammation, pain, anxiety disorders, neurological symptoms, and endocrine disorders that the body may have encounter. By figuring out how this plant and its oil affect the endocrine system, it will give people a better understanding of the beneficial effects it provides.

The Endocrine System

Lets first take a look at the endocrine system and how it functions. The endocrine system is a network of glands and organs that are located throughout the body. This system helps with the production of hormones that are sent out to the specifically targeted organs and tissues that the body not only needs but function properly. Research shows that when hormone levels are too high or even too low, it can indicate a problem with the endocrine system and the entire body as well. When the body does not respond to hormones in the appropriate ways, dysfunction in the body tends to come.

Many factors can cause hormonal change, and some of the most commonly known ones are the ones that happen to anyone daily. Stress, infections, changes in the bloodstream, and even diabetes can influence the hormonal levels and can lead to many chronic illnesses. So making sure that the hormone levels are functioning correctly is key to making sure that the endocrine system is healthy as well.

Cannabis and Its Products

Everyone throughout their childhood has heard that cannabis (marijuana) is an illicit drug and should stay away from it. The plant itself comes from the Cannabis sativa plant and has been harvested by humans for hundreds of years and been used in various cultures. Some evidence shows that the plant itself or some of its components like CBD can be useful to relieve severe pain, inflammation, nausea, and other chronic conditions.

Cannabidiol_CBD_CU_05_1600x900

With the rise of CBD oil in recent years, there is still some confusion and controversy of what it is and how does it affect the human body, mainly affecting the endocrine system. CBD is one of the compounds in marijuana that has a different effect than delta-9 THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is the most active constituent of marijuana. THC creates a mind-altering “high” for the person, while CBD does not change the person’s state of mind at all when it is used. What is interesting is that the human body itself produces certain cannabinoids on its own. The two receptors for the cannabinoids are CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors that are in the body to function.

CB1 receptors are mainly in the brain, providing neurological coordination, movement, and other functions that make the body respond. While with CB2 receptors are more common in the immune system, and these receptors are affecting inflammation and pain. When it comes to CBD oil or the CBD compound itself, it does not attach to the CB receptors but can direct the body to use more of its cannabinoids and has beneficial properties for a person’s health in a variety of ways.

The Benefits of CBD Oil

Since CBD is one of the compounds in the cannabis plant, researchers have been looking at the many possible therapeutic uses and benefits of CBD. Since CBD oils are a concentrated form of CBD, the uses can help the symptoms that the body may encounter, including:

  • Being a natural pain reliever
  • Treating epilepsy
  • Treat neurological disorders
  • Delay the development of type 1 diabetes
  • Slow the progress of Alzheimer�s disease

The Effects of CBD and the Endocrine System

In the endocrine system, there is a complex cell-signaling system known as an endocannabinoid system. What this system does is that its endocannabinoid molecules and receptors in the body and help signal any dysfunction. Studies have found that the endocannabinoid system’s ability is that it can control a person’s appetite in the hypothalamus by attaching itself to CB1 receptors. While another study stated that the CB1 receptor could activate and inhibit the release of GnRH through the effects in the hypothalamus as well.

With more upcoming studies about the usage of cannabinoids, it is incredible how the participation of the endocannabinoids system can help with the secretion of the pituitary hormones that have been documented. Surprisingly, cannabinoids can affect the function of the hypothalamus and pituitary glands in multiple directions.

Conclusion

With more and more people using CBD oils to help alleviate their ailments and more information that has been surrounding this oil. It is essential to know that it is better to not be in pain than to suffer in pain. Using CBD oils can help not only the body system but also helps the endocrine system as well. Some products are used to help alleviate the pain that the body may encounter as well as providing the body a chance to relax and have a good night�s sleep.

How SAG Helps The Body

How SAG Helps The Body

Do you feel:

  • Agitated, easily upset, or have tremors?
  • Afternoon fatigues?
  • Mental sluggishness?
  • Tired?
  • Stressed out?

If you are feeling any of these situations, then you might be experiencing low levels of glutathione, why not add some S-acetyl glutathione into your body.

Glutathione

SALG-skeleton-beige-square-01-1

When glutathione is decreased in the body, it is known as glutathione deficiency or GSH. It is a tripeptide that is consist of L-glutamine, L-cysteine, and glycine while also being functional in the systems of the body. The biosynthesis of glutathione can be affected by some factors such as biochemical individuality or dietary factors. Another factor that can affect glutathione in the body is chronic oxidative stress. Chronic oxidative stress can deplete cellular glutathione in the body, causing it to develop inflammation and dysfunction to its organ systems.

There are ways to boost glutathione levels in the body since these nutrients and supplements are the precursors to glutathione. They consist of whey protein, vitamin C, and glutamine, and they can help raise the glutathione levels in the body to prevent inflammation and disruptive factors that can cause harm to the body; however, the results are inconsistent and need further research. Studies stated that biological individuality is different to every type of body since it is equivalent and can metabolize the precursor nutrients and supplements to the body.

Why Not Distribute Pure Glutathione?

Sadly though, when a person takes glutathione in an oral form, the results are unpleasant. When the person takes glutathione in the mouth, the oral dosage is oxidized instantly, before being absorbed into the body, thus leaving a foul smell. Taking glutathione in a vegetable capsule can help the individual receive glutathione without it being oxidized.

Many formulas can deliver a unique preparation to glutathione that can overcome the limitations it faces. Studies show that S-acetyl glutathione is stable enough to go through the intestinal walls and deposit the necessary nutrients into the body. With S-acetyl glutathione being consumed orally, it can increase the total glutathione and the percent-reduced glutathione so it can be beneficial for the body. With percent-reduced glutathione, it has a very significant biomarker for excellent status for a functional body.

The Mechanics of SAG Absorption

S-acetyl glutathione or SAG is a lipid-like compound that is taken by intact chylomicrons in the gut. The bond from this compound is placed into its thiol group that helps prevents oxidations in the body and allows molecules to pass into the cell walls after being absorbed into the gut. What happens is that the bond is cleaved by non-specific enzymes and helps prevent the breakdown of glutathione, while S-acetyl glutathione does not need expenditures to be cleaved once it crosses the cell walls in the body.

SAG Antioxidant Activity

Since glutathione helps tissue and organ functions throughout the body, it plays a critical role by protecting it from a variety of factors like, for example, oxidative stress, while also maintain cellular functions and supporting a healthy immune system. Studies show that many factors can increase oxidative stress exposure and adding insults to the body, therefore increasing the cellular consumption of the nutrients like glutathione, which provides antioxidant activity. When this happens, it leads to the result of a fiery cycle of oxidative stress and challenges detoxification to the body. Research states that complete biotransformation and protecting the body from oxidative stress is essential for the body to maintain cellular integrity and tissue health.

Benefits of Maintaining Healthy Glutathione Levels

There is plenty of information that is related to cellular health that has been surfaced. Research states that the mitochondria, which is the energy-producing powerhouse cell, has a role in being the primary functional cellular site for consuming oxygen and ROS (reactive oxygen species).� Studies show that S-acetyl glutathione can cross the membranes of the mitochondria by increasing the organ’s activity and minimizing ROS in the body. When ROS is reduced in the body, it can maintain the mitochondrial integrity and its function, while improving its health for the body to function correctly.

Studies show that S-acetyl glutathione can decrease TNF-alpha, NF-kappa beta, and F-2 isoprostane enzymes in the body. Additional studies show that there is a large amount of evidence that intracellular glutathione levels in macrophages can influence the Th1/Th2 cytokine pattern and can help promote a well-balanced immune reaction to the body.

Conclusion

Glutathione is an essential amino acid that is produced in the body. When there are low levels of glutathione in the body, S-acetyl glutathione can assist in maintaining those levels and by making sure that oxidative stress does not reach full capacity in the body to cause significant damage. Some products can provide more excellent stability, bioavailability, and digestive comfort for anyone who might be sensitive to N-acetyl L-cysteine.

Glycine: Astounding Role for Hormones and Sleep

Glycine: Astounding Role for Hormones and Sleep

Do you feel:

  • Inflammation?
  • Hormone imbalances?
  • Weight gain?
  • Brain fog?
  • Stomach pain, burning, or aching 1-4 hours after eating?

If you are experiencing any of these situations, then you might be experiencing low glycine levels in your body.

Glycine

Glycine

Glycine is a vital amino acid that is beneficial to the body. It helps support the gastrointestinal system, the neurological system, the musculoskeletal system, and the body�s metabolism from harmful factors that can cause the human body to malfunction. Glycine is even a neurotransmitter and can help increase glutathione in the brain by providing anti-inflammatory effects. Glycine provides a sweet taste when it is consumed in the body. Even though glycine has a crucial role in the human body, the amino acid has received little to no attention until recently.

The fantastic thing about glycine is that it is a “non-essential” amino acid. What this means is that the body can make glycine by itself and distribute it to the necessary systems that need glycine. This is different from the “essential” amino acids since some nutrients and vitamins must come from the food diet themselves. When there is a mild deficiency of glycine, it is not harmful to the body; however, when there is a severe shortage of glycine, it can lead to immune response failure, slow body growth, and abnormal nutrient metabolism.

Glycine for The Brain

Since glycine is a neurotransmitter for the brain, it composes both excitatory and inhibitory capacities. For the excitatory capacity function, glycine serves as the antagonist for NMDA receptors for the brain. For inhibitory capacities, glycine helps increase the neurotransmitter serotonin. Studies show that serotonin is the ancestor of melatonin. When the levels are increased due to glycine supplements, the beneficial factors it causes can help reduce insomnia and provide better sleep quality.

Glycine on Sleep

Despite being a massive impact on serotonin, glycine has been known to be used as a therapeutic option for individuals to improve their sleep quality as a novel and safe approach.� Studies show that glycine can increase the blood flow to extremities by reducing the body�s core temperature, which is an important signal to initiate sleep. When this happens, glycine can increase a person�s time when they are in REM sleep, providing the person to have a good night’s sleep. Further research shows that glycine can inhibit the stimulatory orexin neurons that are responsible for arousal and energy homeostasis, which is critical and can induce non-REM sleep or even night waking.

Glycine�s Cognitive Effects

There are many beneficial cognitive effects that glycine has to offer. Research shows that the beneficial effect of glycine can help improve episodic memory in young and middle-aged adults. This can be beneficial for patients who have schizophrenia, Parkinson’s disease, and Huntington’s disease. Additional research also shows that patients who have Alzheimer’s disease use glycine as energy production for their brains.

Glycine Osteoprotective Effects

There is even more information on glycine supplementation, providing estrogen-like osteoprotective effects for menopausal women. The research shows that glycine helps decreased weight gain and providing an increase in vaginal weight gain caused by ovariectomy. Many healthcare providers recommend their female patients that have menopause to use glycine in their diet.

More Glycine Effects

Since glycine is a non-essential amino acid and a neurotransmitter for the central nervous system, this supplement can help supple muscle, bone, and connective tissue with collagen. Glycine has a small R group, which forms a triple helix structure that makes up of tropocollagen. In the body, 33% of all collagen is composed of glycine. Collagen levels in the body can decrease naturally due to anyone getting old. When this happens, inflammatory symptoms like arthritis occur. Researchers hypothesize that supplemental doses of glycine can strengthen joints and prevent reactive arthritis by blunting cytokine release by increasing chloride influx in the body.

Glycine is one of the three amino acids that can help aid the production of glutathione for the human body. Since this amino acid is a scavenger antioxidant, it will oppose proinflammatory signals from hydrogen peroxide. Studies show that glycine supplementation plays a vital role in balancing the redox reactions caused by metabolic syndrome in the human body and protecting patients from oxidative damage. There is even more research as a study stated that glycine has a vital role in the metabolism and nutrition of mammals and humans. Since glycine protects from inflammation and has fantastic health benefits for the body, when there are decreased levels of glycine in the body, it can be linked to metabolism-related disorders like type 2 diabetes and fatty liver disease.

Glycine provides cytoprotective effects on the liver and gastrointestinal tract by conjugating bile acids. This is crucial because glycine plays a role in helping lipids to be digested and lipid-soluble vitamins to be absorbed in the body. In alcohol-induced hyperlipidemia, studies have shown that glycine can reduce alcohol levels in the bloodstream while also retaining the membrane integrity by reducing lipid levels. Glycine can even protect the stomach and intestines from damages caused by gastrointestinal disorders. Since glycine can maintain enterocyte integrity and prevent apoptosis, its anti-inflammatory effects can fight oxidative stress. They can provide the requirements to the intestines and the gut in the body.

Conclusion

Glycine is a vital amino acid that provides anti-inflammatory properties for not only the body’s metabolism but also helps the gastrointestinal system. With more and upcoming research about glycine, it is essential for this amino acid to continue to provide outstanding effects to the human body and to make sure that it functions properly. When harmful factors start entering the body, or there is a glycine deficiency, it can cause the body to malfunction. So incorporating glycine-rich foods in the daily diet can help alleviate the symptoms gradually. Some products are beneficial for the body since they help support the immune system and make sure the body is functioning.
